“The Impact Rise Program helped social entrepreneurs provide answers, open new horizons, and scale up their ventures.”
Maya Barhouche, Grants Program Manager at the U.S. Embassy of Beirut
Social entrepreneurship is essential to the Lebanese economy and plays a major role in creating and sustaining a better socio-economic environment. However, it needs a proper ecosystem to grow where social innovators can be mentored, financed, and supported. This is addressed and solved through Berytech’s Impact Rise program – Lebanon’s pioneer social entrepreneurship scale-up program launched in October 2019 and funded by MEPI.
Since then, Lebanon has been suffering from the biggest economic crisis. And after the disastrous Beirut Blast, many people have lost their jobs. Economic inflation is affecting businesses and decreasing the number of startups willing to invest in this country. With these circumstances, Impact Rise startups need guidance and support now more than ever to continue rising.
For this reason, Berytech is running this campaign to promote the seven startups, showcase their social impact, and entice people from Lebanon and abroad to help them either by becoming a client, an investor, a donor, or a partner.
The Impact Rise social innovation program is designed and managed by Berytech and funded by the U.S.-Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI). Aiming to advance stability and prosperity in the Middle East and North Africa region, the Middle East Partnership Initiative program supports governments and their citizens to achieve shared political, economic and stability objectives. The MEPI program responds to needs and emerging opportunities for citizens and organizations that target two core objectives: Participatory Governance and Economic Opportunity. Learn more.
One of the foundations of building a good social startup is involving one’s network as stakeholders in the venture, and in the impact one is aiming to create. With that in mind, Berytech developed the Impact Rise social innovation program and designed it as an inclusive ecosystem that helps social startups scale. Meet the partners helping us fulfill that objective.
As a member of the Global Compact Network Lebanon, Berytech enacts the 10 principles of the UNGC and the Impact Rise Program falls under Berytech’s mission to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals.
